Pours a dark, dark brown with nice dark beige head, smooth and creamy. Lace is smooth and clingy. Looks great.
Smells sweet and pleasant. Mostly chocolate with caramel and vanilla sweetness. Pleasant milk stouty notes, not overly sweet but plenty of enjoyable mellifluous chars. I assume the hops are maybe there as a balancing act for the sweetness, but I expect more hop aroma for the style. Very nice smell but lacking the IP bits of the IPA.
More roasty and stouty on the palate, quite burnt and bitter at times, with quite a spicy character, black pepper and nicely roasted coffee beans. Bit dry, with a slight watery note late-mid before a bitter chocolatey finish. Portery more than anything, doesn't quite have the hop character of a black IPA. But decent body, decent flavour, just seems more like a nicely balanced American porter.
Not a bad beer, decent flavours; incongruity with marketing shouldn't really diminish the beer's intrinsic enjoyment. After dinner sort of stuff with decent dark spicy notes.
Serving type: on-tap
